Hello all,

in some of the Data methods, I check if the current record locked or not. For this case I have defined a method, that return true, if the record is locked, otherwise false.

But I am not sure, should I call the lockedRecords.notifyAll() at the end of this method?

I call lockedRecords.notifyAll() only in the unlock method, to notify that the current record was unlocked. But what about if this method will be called in the delete method or in the update? Is it correct not to call lockedRecords.notifyAll() in this method?

Can you help me?

My advise to you is not to call notifyAll() at all, as it goes contrary to Sun's specification of wasting no cycles. You might wish to use queues and call notify on monitor objects in those queues.
